Propranolol works great when used on an as-needed basis before speeches, work meetings, etc. Read the reivews for propranolol on drugs.com. You take it about an hour before the event. I find combining a beta-blocker like propranolol with a benzo like Klonopin really works wonders, although they will probably make you a bit tired. You will have to go through a bit of trial and error to see how much you need to reduce your anxiety. Some people need a lot. Some people need very little.
